Measures are in accordance with the provisions of the Council Presidency on the coronavirus infection.

 

According to the new measures for containing COVID-19 infections provided for by Prime Ministerial Decree dated 26 April 2020, it is mandatory, throughout Italy, to use respiratory protection in enclosed places that are accessed by the public and at all times when it is not possible to continuously guarantee the maintenance of the safety distance. Even at the airport, the use of masks is therefore compulsory; passengers who do not have them can  ask at the security checks.

N.B. Children under the age of six are not under this obligation, nor are those with disabilities that do not require the continuous use of masks or individuals who interact with the aforementioned people.

Passengers flying to countries that necessarily require a negative Covid-19 swab carried out in Italy before departure must implement the following procedure:

  • Travellers carrying a medical prescription on plain paper must go to a CUP (Single Centre for accessing the booking of appointments and examinations within health facilities in the region) desk to register and pay for the service. Passengers not residing in the Lazio Region and carrying a travel ticket can go to the ADR Emergency Department at Fiumicino airport – located near Terminal 3 Arrivals – to obtain a medical prescription.
  • The CUP desk issues users with 2 copies of the payment receipt. Payment amounts to €69.88.
  • Users must go to the “drive-in” test centre of the health facility of the regional area where the booking at been made - handing over a copy of the payment receipt - and shall undergo the test. Instructions for receiving the results of the test will be provided at the drive-in centre.  

We advise following the procedure described above as far in advance as possible and, in any case, within the maximum time permitted by the provisions of the foreign countries of destination.

For further information, you can contact the ADR Emergency Department call centre (tel. 06.6595.3133/3134).

 

 

In line with the legislation implemented by the Ministry of Health (protocol no. 21870 of June 23, 2020) and ENAC (the Italian Civil Aviation Authority), all airlines, from the 26th of June onwards, will require passengers to complete a self-declaration Covid-19 form before departure, including: 

  1. self-certification by the passenger that they have not had any close contact with anyone known to have the COVID 19 disease in the two days before the onset of symptoms, and in the 14 days after the onset of symptoms
  2. for the purposes of tracing possible contacts, the passenger must notify the airline and local health authority if they become aware of any COVID 19 symptoms within 8 days of landing.  The attached form has been provided by the Ministry of Health and must be completed by the passenger - preferably electronically - and delivered to the airline before departure.
